A family recipe. Items can be substituted depending on diet. My uncle used margarine instead of lard. My aunt prefers can milk instead of quart milk. It can be thrown in a container and cooked over a camp fire or cut into smaller pieces and deep-fried in a frying pan (fry bread). My grandma used to add raisins to her bannock. She would also bring it along on camping trips and we would roll strips over a tree branch and cook it over a campfire. You can also cut strips of the dough and twist pieces together to form a braid and deep fry (metis style). For the round pan-fried bannock, you can add ground beef, onions, grated carrots, and topped with grated cheese to make some Indian tacos. In short... go crazy!!
